Sorbitol- Ingredient of the Month
WHAT IS IT?
Sorbitol is a sugar alcohol known as glucitol, which the human body metabolises slowly. The majority of sorbitol is made from corn syrup, but may also be obtained from leaves and berries of mountain ash, cherries, apples, peaches, prunes and pears.
Pevonia sourced Sorbitol for their products from Cherries.
HOW CAN SORBITOL HELP MY SKIN?
Sorbitol has a superior water-binding capacity and acts as a natural humectant, which attracts moisture from the air and binds it to your skin cells, slowing its evaporation. Sorbitol will help to promote healthy cell renewal by ensuring the underlying dermis remains fully hydrated, so your complexion looks firm, fresh, and vibrant as the surface cells stay plump.
It is less likely to prove irritating or damaging to sensitive complexions, as the molecules found in Sorbitol are very similar to our own. This makes them easy for the skin to absorb into its deeper layers. Sorbitol is also an excellent substance to use on Oily skin as it will moisturise and lubricate without depositing a greasy film or clogging pores leaving skin silky smooth.
